Natalie is an Abstract Artist working with Acrylic and Mixed Media. Her work documents a very personal journey, a therapeutic reconnection with art. As she has progressed creatively she has became freer, worrying less, and learning to look at things differently; a mirror to her life in general.
My works are about being spontaneous and freeing the mind in the process. About paint movement and the unknown. About allowing the paint to flow and take a life of its own. Almost 'Accidental'. About investigation and behaviours.
She believes that ‘What’s the Worst That Can Happen?’ Mistakes are inevitable; and we learn from them. If it doesn’t work first time, you can start again or try something else and go back to it later. This has given her a lot of creative and personal freedom. Everything happens for a reason.
"You don't always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens" - Unknown
Not one piece defines anything in particular; it's not about the finished piece but the process of doing it, using the whole body and the inspiration to ‘let go’.
